Fan control for Amilo Xi 1554/1546/1547/1526 on Linux Debian

Hello,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. :)

I just did under Linux what NHC did under Windows. I found a way to override an ACPI field with a fake temperature so that the fan begin to spin at a certain temperature.

I wrote a tutorial to achieve that: http://www.gabsoftware.com/tips/tutoria ... 1526-1546/

Basically you have to add a method in your DSDT then find a way for your Linux to load the custom DSDT. I use Debian Squeeze so the only option was to compile my own kernel :D

I was thinking it could be helpful to the community.

There are high chances that this tutorial apply for the following models because they share the same DSDT and BIOS:
  • Amilo Xi 1554
  • Amilo Xi 1547
  • Amilo Xi 1546
  • Amilo Xi 1526
  • Amilo Pi 1556
  • Amilo Pi 1536
  • Amilo Xi 14xx

Best regards!
